I’ve always been told by my coaches, my teachers, my friends, and most of all my family that I have a talent for this sport. I never believed them though, that is until one coach came to me and told me the same thing, but also telling, “that if I wanted to be great, I needed to put more effort and work into it and not just go out and play with friends.” This statement turned my mindset around and MADE me start working at my flaws physically and mentally. It helped me enormously and also started to make me help others as well.
after all my hard work I had a good couple tournaments, then 8th grade year came tolling around and I began to hang out a lot, I began to get more interested in hanging out with girls, and this shattered my career. Anyways despite all that I decided to play in tournaments during the summer, which was a big mistake. I had a streak of terrible tournaments, my scoring average suffered so I decided I would retire from the rest of the tournaments and I would go to work, and ended up going to my old coach to help me with my game. All the work I did last year in my 9th grade summer has now payed off during my sophomore summer. I not only feel like I am playing pretty good golf; I also feel like my mentality has greatly improved and feel like my coach has also helped me find my best self and could be a major factor in helping me play amazing golf in the future.
